Sunshine Blogger Awards XVI and XVII

Back in December, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Shruti Dubhi who blogs over at Fantastic Reads. She’s a bit of a shy blogger but posts regularly about her life and beliefs.

Joshua from Spread the Word also kindly nominated me. It’s not the first time he’s done so and I suspect it may not be the last!

Don’t forget to check out both these lovely bloggers and give them a follow if you don’t already.
